From additional Cards to fraud protection, your new Platinum Edge Credit Card never stops.

Supplementary Credit Cards

One privilege of your Platinum Edge Credit Card membership is that you have access to up to four Supplementary Credit Cards9 at no extra cost. What’s more, Membership Rewards points earned on each Supplementary Credit Card will be credited to your Account, so you can reach the reward of your choice faster2.

To apply for a Platinum Edge Supplementary Credit Card, please call Platinum Priority Service on 0800 332 368 (select option 1) or click here

Additional Credit Card

At any time, you may request an additional Platinum Edge Credit Card, which means you will have one Account, but two separate Cards which are both issued in your name. The advantage of having two Cards is to separate your expenses – home improvements from your day-to-day expenses, for example. The charges on both Cards will be reflected separately on one billing statement and will both earn Membership Rewards points2.

To request an additional Platinum Edge Credit Card, please call Platinum Priority Service on 0800 332 268 (select option 1).
